(Pics) Energy Efficient Homes For Musicians
A Dutch architecture firm creates eco-friendly communal homes for creative artists.
As part of the International Building Exhibition Hoogvliet, 24H Architecture has created a series of fantastically designed, environmental friendly homes meant to house musicians. The project features 38 homes, each with its own music room containing a “light pyramid” protruding through the grass. The housing complex consumes low amounts of energy, as it is equipped with a heating system that recycles energy from the neighboring Rotterdam harbor while the facades of the homes are made from hydro-thermal treated local wood.
